As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away.

Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.

Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself.

Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

This is a fabulous place to visit and so much to know! You can literally cover the whole ship over 4 floors. The history is out of this world and it was amazing to to learn so much more from the experts on hand itself. They are so passionate about it's history and that rubs off on you!

Viewed the Warrior as a possible wedding venue. Whilst we didn't book, due to it being too large a venue for our wedding numbers, the ship is amazing! We were shown around and the idea of a wedding on the Warrior sounded absolutely amazing. A really good day trip out wondering about.

We visited here as we had a ticket to visit all the attractions for the historic ship yard in Portsmouth. She is a working process funded by grants and lots of donations and what they have achieved so far is outstanding. You won't be disappointed when you are on board with the restoration work, rigging and of course the treats... More

I've been on HMS Warrior many times and it's my personal favourite, so much to see and do learn about sea life all those years ago and what a typical day would involve, and such poor conditions, for its age the technology it had and the way in which it's still standing today in all it glory, worth a trip.

You are free to roam as you please from up decks to the deepest dark bowels of the ship, they have guides on hand to answer any questions that you may have, true must see.

Went with a crowd of "girls" on a tour through the Royal Marines Museum Friends. We were shown all the interesting parts that not everyone gets to see - right down below. It really is a lovely ship and was used when my partner of Portsmouth Shantymen was in Gareth Malone's TV programme! Lots of volunteers on board to give... More
